and those pre-teens who think theyre auwsome just cause they can draw a crappy comic strip are idiots! it's like learn how to draw properly! and BEFORE you can even start thinking your auwsome, get some inteligence!
Lol, thanks. I'm glad you agree. Before you can even try to develop a style, you must learn to draw realistically first. Cartoons ruin proportions for people who are learning how to draw, manga is a very good example of this. :]
this made me laugh! manga is annoyingly hard too draw, chibi's not so much! must go draw real life! i totaly agree wqith all of the comments espaicialy(can't spell good) when people want to become your freind becuase you can draw!!! drawing is hard and takes alot of time! and the naruto thing, just becuase you can draw naruto, doesn't mean your good at art! it just means you like naruto! also finding your own style is hard though! sorry if i rambled on too much!
Right but the first step is drawing from life. Any real (as in, any Japanese) manga artist would tell you this. Objects and backgrounds are not copied from other manga styles. Did you learn to draw a chair by reading Ranma 1/2?
I know I'm 15 and I draw manga but I learnt how to draw by constantly copying pictures untill I thought I got it right.
When I was a Nwe Entry at Sea Cadets one night and when we were doodling on some paper and one of the other new entries saw a doodle of one of my chars I had done and asked me politley if I could draw it on her paper which I was fine with. But when I had finnished it, she drew a arrow and wrote "I drew this" with out giving me any credit. That pissed me off but I kept it to myself as I didn't want any trouble.
And what is it with Naruto and chibbi? Both things annoy me to hell!!
I am 14, but before you say anything I am practicing real and anime styles so I can get the anatomy of people right. I agree, I hate it when people want to be your friend just because you can draw, and when you say you won't draw them something they leave and act like they never knew you. And just so you know I can not draw Naruto.
P.S. I didn't take offence to anything any of you said I just thought I would tell you what I think too.
OH FUCK YES. It's hilarias, really. I mean, I have respect for 'real' artists that dabble in the manga style, because just like any art form, it takes practice, balance, contrast, anatomy, etc. It's just fucking dumb that...fifty million pre-teen fucktards out there think they're so damn awesome because they can half-ass a page from some manga.
For me in school it was always "DRAW ME SOMETHING" or "TEACH ME HOW TO DRAW". This from people who had been mean to me before. Because, you know, as an ARTIST, I am expected to do these things for people.
